Farmer Wants A Wife 2024: Meet Farmer Bert

Farmer Wants A Wife 2024 - Bert

Bert is the first ever pineapple farmer on the show.

Farmer Bert is a 30-year-old pineapple farmer from Queensland, who is about to begin the search for a soulmate when Farmer Wants A Wife returns to Channel Seven and 7plus after Easter.

Fourth-generation pineapple, dragon fruit and pumpkin farmer, and a third-generation Bert, this farmer is impeccably mannered, selfless and honest, with a heart of gold. Bert has worked hard to take over the family farm and runs it on his own.

He now wants someone with whom to share it. His ideal partner is funny, outgoing, adventurous, understands long hours of his work, can banter and gets along with everyone, especially his nanna, whose disapproval could be a dealbreaker.

Bert – the first ever pineapple farmer on the show – acknowledges life on the land can be lonely, but he assures he has a wealth of love to share.

“I think that I’m ready for something special. I’m ready to dive in and try again,” Bert says as he gears up to meet his favourites.

Farmer Wants A Wife, produced by Eureka Productions for the Seven Network, is hosted by Samantha Armytage and co-host Natalie Gruzlewski.
